Notes: Data is self-reported. Colorectal cancer screening estimates for 2013 are available for aduts aged 50-plus in 15 states. This indicator was assessed among all survey respondents aged 50-plus in 10 states (AZ, DE, FL, GA, HI, MI, NE, NV, NH, and WA), and among a subset of survey respondents aged 50-plus in 5 other states (CA, MA, NJ, NY, and OK). Colorectal cancer screening is defined as receipt of fecal occult blood test (FOBT) in the last year, or sigmoidoscopy in the last 5 years and FOBT in the last 3 years, or colonoscopy in the last 10 years. Breast cancer screening estimates for 2013 are available for women in 7 states. This indicator was assessed among all female survey respondents in 4 states (FL, GA, HI, and TN), and among a subset of female survey respondents in 3 other states (NJ, OK, and OR). Breast cancer screening is defined as receipt of mammogram in last 2 years. Cervical cancer screening estimates for 2013 are available for women in 6 states. This indicator was assessed among all female survey respondents in 4 states (FL, GA, HI, and TN), and among a subset of female survey respondents in 2 other states (NJ, and OK). Cervical cancer screening is defined as receipt of Pap test in last 3 years. All population-level estimates are weighted to account for complex survey design and sociodemographic characteristics of the survey respondents. Estimates based on fewer than 50 interviews have been suppressed due to unreliability.
